Do you remember your senior prom? I sure do. The hunt for the perfect dress took more than one Saturday: my mom had the patience of Job. I was very fortunate because my parents could afford to buy my dress.

A lot of girls don’t have it so easy. So, for the fourth consecutive year The Salvation Army in Pasadena – with the help of many generous donors – made preparing for this year’s prom a snap!

One hundred low-income Pasadena-area high school girls “shopped” for a beautiful new or gently used prom dresses free of charge. And, the quilting club which meets at the Army church in Pasadena volunteered their time to do the alterations.

We also want to thank Lisa Guerrero from Inside Edition for donating some of her red carpet gowns for the girls! She brought a camera operator to the event and did a story for her show. Once it airs, we’ll add a link to the story here so be sure to check back.
